A members-only dining club serving Japanese cuisine and Obanzai (home-style Kyoto cooking).


Welcome to Shojo-ann

Shojo-ann is bordered on the north by the historic 'ichi no funa-iri' flatboat landing and on the west by sakura-lined Takase River and Kiyamachi Street.
Originally an inn catering to the Takase River boatmen, Shojo-ann is now a restaurant where, in the spring, one can enjoy cherry blossoms and, in early summer, the flickering light of fireflies.
Whatever the season this scenic spot has something to delight the senses.

The restaurant serves both informal kaiseki (banquet) cuisine and home-style Kyoto cooking called Obanzai.
All dishes make use of local seasonal vegetables, as well as seafood, beef, and edible mountain delicacies from various regions of Japan.
We make every effort to satisfy our guests requests and special needs; if you have any food preferences, please let us know when you make your reservation.

Please understand that our clientele is limited to those persons who have an introduction and a reservation.

Looking forward to serving you,
Takashi MATSUMOTO, proprietor
